Duplicate floors

Press left mouse button > Move from top level to bottom right > Select the entire floor to be duplicated:

Press Ctrl-C to copy.

Left-click: Modify > Clipboard > Paste:

Left-click: Aligned to Selected Levels:

Select one or more levels where you would duplicate the selected floor:

Take care not to duplicate the same elements at the same level more than once.

The duplicated floors will show on the elevation.

Note in this example that the 1/F has not been created.The storey height of the 2/F has not been set to be equal to the storey height of the 1/F. This leaves a gap between the top of the duplicated floor and the level line above. This should actually be avoided.
